LOS ANGELES. — Former National Basketball Association player Lamar Odom was released from a Las Vegas hospital after showing signs of improvement following his drug-fuelled binge in a Nevada brothel, a report said.

E! Online entertainment news website said Odom, who was left fighting for his life after collapsing at the Love Ranch brothel last week, was being moved to a medical facility nearer his Los Angeles home.

The decision came after doctors judged Odom (35) was stable enough to be moved after regaining consciousness last week and continuing to recover through the weekend.

The report said the two-time NBA champion remained on dialysis because of a kidney problem but had passed a swallowing test and could breathe independently. E! said Odom was communicating using hand signals. — AFP.
